Testimonials from people who have enjoyed Mike's storytelling performance of his fun show "Humorous Stories from ALASKA and beyond".

Mike and a happy audience member

This is where people say nice things about my show - but honest, I didn't bribe anybody.


This is Michael R Dougherty, but you can call me Mike.

My performances are never about me. They are always about creating a fun atmosphere for my audience and about telling fun stories that make my audience smile, laugh and have a great time.

So I really appreciate all the great comments I receive from people who have been a part of my audiences, enjoyed my presentation and my "Humorous Stories from ALASKA... and beyond"


"From the opening line to the conclusion of “Sledding in Alaska,” Michael had us on the edges of our seats. And, yes, Alaska was brought into our homes (or shall I say, class)—in a way that we hadn’t experienced—through Michael’s telling of his tales from the 49th state.

His presentation was funny, exciting, and held more than a few surprises; it made us feel part of a childhood spent in rural Alaska like only a native Alaskan can. For some reason, my Alaskan cruise excursions—good as they were— didn’t convey the same sense of excitement, wonder, resourcefulness, and adventure that came across in Michael’s presentation. Great stuff. And we’re still waiting to hear about the dynamite in the outhouse!" Bill

"Mike's stories are so entertaining." Harriet

"Great show, very different and it was fun to laugh." Hadassah Group

"Mike's performance was the most enjoyable time I've ever had here at Summerhill. I enjoyed the time we spent with you." Simone
